Description
Casual gets classy with these gorgeous pieces,
designed for light to medium-weight knits like
French terry, ITY, silk(y) jersey, panne velvet,
interlock jersey,  ponte, or firm sweater knits.

Semi-fitted, pull-on dress or top has a self-fabric
or rib bound jewel neckline. Dress and top have
a dropped raglan cut; choose between cap or
3/4 length sleeves. Dress and sleeve hems
are finished with a deep turn-up; top has a faced
hem with side slits and a lower back. Use the
optional kangaroo pocket on the dress or the
top-we
also like to use applied braid or coverstitch
on the seamlines for a modern sporty look.

These cool pieces are great to throw on over
your workout gear and they make gorgeous
lounging outfits too. Team these off-duty  
pieces with old school sneakers or a sporty
ballet flat, and try the dress alone or with
a long drape-y cardigan; your top looks fab
over jeans, sweatpants or leggings.

    Runs big

    Published by Lulu on 9th May 2019

    This is a simple, comfortable dress, but I found it to run big. I made a ten, which matched my measurements and the size I’ve used (successfully) for several other hotpatterns. I took in the sides/sleeves by nearly an inch per side and tapered the sleeves to the wrist to look tidier. I also took 2” from the neckband, but it’s still a little gappy. I also shortened the dress, but that is purely personal choice, not fit. I plan to make this dress again, but I will either take it in at the centers when I cut it out or make a size smaller to narrow the neck enough that I don’t have to watch my bra straps. My fabric was a cotton interlock, fairly stretchy, but the fit issues were present when the fabric was at rest. Still, an attractive dress that I enjoy wearing.
